About Me and My SIMPLE Life!


Hi, I’m Jill!

I am a busy mom to 5 boys and 1 princess. It’s never a dull moment around our neck of the woods. Unfortunately, only 4 of my children live with me. The other two live with their dad. I’m a single work at home mom and know life can get crazy busy.

But I am simple by choice.

I find JOY in sharing the simple tips and resources that aid our large family. Relationships are priority to me and I am always searching for tips and tricks to help with time management, so I can enjoy the relationships that I’ve been blessed with.

My heart’s desire is to help other families live a simple frugal life by sharing the in’s and out’s of what works for our family.  You will see a variety of topics on Blessed Beyond a Doubt including family, parenting, single mom encouragement, recipes, homemaking, homeschooling and educational resources and simple and frugal tips.

You will not find me sharing time-consuming recipes or DIY’s, but only effortless ideas! Time is essence in my busy life. 

I’m all about EASY, but effective!

Most importantly, I share my strong Christian faith and love to tell others how I am blessed beyond a doubt.

And indeed I am.  This is the place I give all the glory to HIM!

A Taste of our Simplicity

I look forward to connecting with you and sharing the incredible parenting journey. 

It’s a simple as that!

Seeking Him,

Jill – the crazy simple gal behind the blog


  1. Hi Jill. I followed some links backward from my site to yours. Thanks for linking to mine through English From The Roots Up. I’m the mom of 6 boys ages 4,6,11,14,15,20. Boys sure are fun aren’t they?

  2. Just a thank you for linking to Everyday Mommy.

  3. Wow- 5 boys!!! you certainly are out numbered. What a stong testiment you have in your faith and your committment to train them as men of God!!

  4. You are out numbered but it is a good feeling isn’t it? I am a mom to three boys and I love them all. While I am glad to be the woman in the mix I love the advetures they take me on. I’ll be back to see your blog soon!

  5. Congratulations on your five sons! I, too, have five sons and I am expecting our sixth child in March. Although we don’t know the gender (we never find out before they are born), but I have a feeling its another boy. I realize that to have six sons is such a blessing and I am anxious to meet him (or by chance her) soon. I love your blog. You definitely have the right heart and mind in raising your little family. Keep up the great work!

  6. I have enjoyed my visit.

    We too have five boys too. It’s never boring around here. LOL.


  7. How neat to find another mom like myself! I, too have 5 boys and 1 girl. Wouldn’t trade ’em for the world, though another girl wouldn’t hurt, either…

    I love all the comments about boys. I have 3 biological sons and 3 step-sons and 1 daughter whom just happens to be the youngest.

  9. Hello thanks for coming to my party. I really love your blog. Please take my button.

    That was the code for it.

  10. Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I’m glad to meet you and check out your site. I look forward to reading more!


  11. I am loving your blog Girlie…You are such a blessing!!!

  12. Love your blog & so glad we found it! I’m excited to learn so much from you! I’m sure we would be friends in real life! 🙂

  13. I just stumbled upon your blog – and am so blessed to have found you! I’m also a homeschooling mom of 6 (5 amazing sons and 1 tomboy princess too!). I can’t wait to check everything out! Many blessings and thanks for sharing!

  14. Hello! Just found your blog yesterday. I am a brand new mom, so life definatlly has changed after my ds was born. I was looking for some things on how to get organized. I am sure will find some useful info here!

  15. Love your blog also. Just starting my homeschool journey. I have 5 daughters and 1 son;)

  16. We just began our homeschool journey this year (2nd and 4th grade}. It’s been a challenge, but we’re making it. I wanted to take a second and THANK YOU for your blog. To say that it’s been a blessing is an understatement. Every time I read your blog I think “ok, I can do this”. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  17. Hi;
    I am a mom of 3 boys. My youngest is 12 and
    this is his 2nd year in an online charter school.
    He is not doing well and I’m not to crazy about
    the common core curriculum. My husband refuses to try other options for him because he knows this school is accredited.
    I am a Christian and would like to “train my son in the way he should go so when he is older, it will not depart from him”.
    How do I convince my husband that there are other options for his education?

  18. Trying to subscribe to my email but cannot seem to find the button…

  19. I attempted to enter your Homeschool Giveaway that was supposed to end on 21 July 2014. The enter submit button is not showing up. Is this for real or just an attempt to gather email addresses for junk emails?

  20. I am going to make the easy chicken and rice crock pot meal. I am gluten free so will be using a different cream of chicken soup. Do you mix the soup with water or milk before you pour in the pot or do you just pour right from the can? (In my case box) thanks!

  21. If we lived close, we’d totally be besties! Love your personality that shines through your blog and even more that you are a child of God! Reckon that makes us sisters in Christ!

  22. Hi Jill, thanks for all you do for us moms, I enjoy ur blog!
    I have a princess in kindergarten. I’m big n family first n we travel a lot, specially b/c my whole family is overseas. Well this doesn’t work with our conventional educational system, and the more I read about homeschooling the more it seems like a perfect fit for my family. HOWEVER I have doubts if I can do it. For many reason, would I Be disciplined enough? Smart enough? I want her n brother who’s 2 yrs away from k age to be more than average with knowledge, how could I achieve that?
    It’s overwhelming the info out there, where do I begging??? Help!
    Thanks for listening 😉
    Any info or direction u can offer would b appreciated.

  23. Hi, Wow, I’m really impressed, you not only have 5 kids but do a blog n do other things. I only have one child but it seems I never have time for anything else, how do you do it? Thank you for the post on strawberries, my son loves strawberries and I hate throwing away, well….. Really anything honestly. I guess I’m a hoarder but I try to be frugal as well. Honestly, how do you have time for yourself with 5 kids? I think I’d probably go crazy.

    • Hi Rachel,

      My life as a new season that I’m embracing new each day. I’m a new single mom who homeschools and works at home. However, my blog is not just a hobby for me, but my only source of income.

    Hi Jill. Its good to find some organized homeschool like yours. You are really a Blessing and your children are blessed to have been homeschooled. I homeschooled my kids for a year and got sick before I could get them assessed however when they went back to school they easily got through to the next grade. Home schooling is fun, there’s no compulsory formal education but one has got to be organised and you get to spend serendipity time with the rest of your even when there is a new born baby in the house. wherever you go with kids the place whether a mall or ice-rink it can be turned into an educational experience. I love teaching my kids at home! Its a wonderful experience.

  26. Jill:
    You are not outnumbered. Now my great, great Grandmother was outnumbered. She had 15 Sons and when she became pregnant with number 14 her husband said it better be a girl. When son 16 was born my great, great grandfather called him quits. When No. 17 came along great, great grandma didn’t tell him she was pregnant (she was a heavy woman and did not show). He found out when she told him to get the midwife. No 17 was the girl great, great grandpa wanted from the start. So I would say that 16 boys is being outnumbered. ;0)

  27. Cindy Howe says:

    Hi last year I printed from your website a first of school for different grades. I would like to do it again this year but I can’t find it . Can you point me I the right direction Thank You!

  28. Wow! I am amazed by your commitment to homeschooling all of your kids. I just took my girls out of school to began homeschooling them but I am so lost and confused, any tips? I am worried I wont be able to teach or help them properly. My husband and I are pioneering a baby church and with all that in hand and homeschooling I am glad I know I am not the only one and that Christ is in control of all.

  29. Hi! I just wanted to say I love your site. I wanted to ask also if you are planning to do the owl calendar for 2016? Believe it or not, I found it last year and use it religiously to keep my family and I organized. I work in a school and I had shared the calendar with a colleague. When she left the school the person that took her position loves owls! I found the calendar at the copy room and then on her desk in A3 like a desk pad. 🙂 We love it and are hoping you will do one for 2016. Thanks for all you do!

    • Hi Kimberly,

      Absolutely, we would love to provide a 2016 owl calendar. Keep look at during the first week of December. Thank you for your kind words.


  30. Jill:

    I would like to join you in your Book Challenge. I read a lot of cookbooks because I love to try new things, (of course my husband is not as thrilled with my new recipes), but he is a Southern boy born and raised and his mom worked and what was good for mom to make is good enough for him. Poor guy for the first 3 years of our marriage he ate spaghetti at least once a week and he hates spaghetti. To say this about him he never complained. When we finally moved to his home town when he was discharged from the Coast Guard he asked his mom to teach me to cook :”Good Southern Food” so he would not starve anymore. I still make new things even if he won’t eat them. My 3 kids will. So it does not go to waist.

  31. Hi I am new to homeschooling and am looking for a recordkeeping page that I can use to keep track of grades and attendance. I was looking for a free printable download but unable to find any can you please help me? I am currently homeschool only 13-year-old who is in seventh grade and a nine-year-old who is in fourth grade thank you.

    Hi Jill

    I just want to say that your blog is an encouragement in Christ to me. My prayers are with you!

  33. Hi!!! I got an email from you a few weeks ago promoting a program called “A to Z Medical Transcribing”. I wanted to make sure this was a real thing, sent from you and not some sort of scam??

    • Yes, it’s from me. I actually sending out another one to those that didn’t open it. So if you get another, it’s from me. I scheduled a few days ago. If you have any questions, ask Debra. Her email is in the email.

  34. San Limer says:

    Hi Jill,
    I just came across several of you recipes that sound delicious and I can’t wait to try. I just want to clarify before I make them. When you say add a box of cake mix, do you mean the powdered cake mix or do you mean prepared as on package of cake mix?

    Thanks so much,

  35. I’m referring to the pumpkin apple crisp and the moist carmel apple cake.



  36. hope you publish a 2018 owl calendar!
